ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and BA 40

Although meat proteins are very functional, there are times when meat products can benefit from the addition of other ingredients. With ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and ExcelPro™ Plus BA 40 we offer two compounds, where sodium alginate adds additional functionality to pork and beef protein in the shape of heat stability just as it works with the proteins to help retain moisture and modify texture.

The series consists of:

  • ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40
  • ExcelPro™ Plus BA 40

Excellent gelling properties make ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and ExcelPro™ Plus BA 40 ideal for meat extension in a whole range of processed meat applications. In addition to bringing improved cost-in-use, they add textural benefits to many meat systems.

ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and ExcelPro™ Plus BA 40 improve your overall yield as they let you add 10-15 % of gel on top of your recipe.

Meat-based functional proteins (pork for ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and beef for ExcelPro™ Plus BA 40) are combined with sodium alginate and a number of stabilizers that help improve the dispersibility of the powder and provide a more homogenic gel.

Both variants have the same excellent gelling properties and the same water-binding capacity. The heat stability of these compounds make ExcelPro™ Plus PA 40 and  Plus BA 40 ideal for pre-cooked meat products.

These compounds are applied to the meat system as gels. Once the heat-stable gel is formed, it can be chopped, ground or cut into the sizes needed for the desired effect.
